Hello, my wife is going through her post pregnancy stage. Our baby is now around 3.5 month. She has been suffering from back pain and joints paints. She is having severe pain while standing from a sitting position or while sitting or bending down. Even during sleep when she take movements. At times it is unbearable.
We have been to docs but till now no improvements. The pain happens right on her waist line bones. It's severe for sometime and than slowly heels down. After delivering the baby, she was diagnosed with viral fever. She follwed the medication and regular check up. But this back pain is giving her lot of problems. Pls advise n guide me as to what to do ?

Although , Low back ache is quite common in Pregnancy or later because of the drag on the spine but it continues because of hectic schedule of lady and time to time lifting the child. However, from the history, it appears pain is quite severe. She needs to be examined for Disc herniation. I can help her for treatment. Meanwhile, she should avoid bending & lifting the child and do back exercises if already prescribed
During Pregnancy , Lot of pressure comes up on women back and lower spine .
If no medication is working on her , you can take her for physiotherapy sessions in clinic or home visits also available.
Physiotherapist will work on her pain with some modalities and her back must be weak , so she needs low back strengthening exercise and postural training.
In my opinion you need to take physio sessions for your wife and go for calcium and vitamin b 12 and vitamin d test as there values are deranged pre and post pregnancy... so you need to check with the values of these...and after pain control spinal extension and strengthening exs are required with postural correction.. get well soon and take care
Post pregnancy such pains are very common due to following reasons,
1. Weak muscle tone
2. Severe vitamin deficiency
To tackle this please get her vitamin levels tested. Start treatment on that. See a good physiotherapist, start core strengthening exercises. Pl try and reduce weight if she is overweight. Nothing can replace a good clinical evaluation but these steps will help in long run
